Cesspool Services and Replacement in Massachusetts Today

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has cesspool services and a cesspool replacement scheduled today in Stoughton, Bridgewater, Canton, Taunton, Berkley and Carver, MA.  As written on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. A conventional septic system has a tank where solids can settle and begin to degrade, a distribution box, and a soil absorption system (SAS) that further treats the effluent by removing some of the bacteria, viruses, phosphorus, and nitrogen.”

 

To sell a property you need a Title 5 Inspection to be done. Title 5 does not require that cesspools be replaced however as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant”.
We are replacing a cesspool for a customer because it has hydraulic failure. If you are concerned that your cesspool needs replacing or you require a cesspool service please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
